new threads when people lose capacity bars?

Sun Jul 26, 2015 11:03 pm

I know some of the moderators here get quite annoyed when people unnecessarily start new threads. I don't usually get that annoyed because in some cases, it was ok or there really should've been a new thread.

However, I've noticed numerous times in the past few months, people have started new threads to announce they lost a capacity bar. IMHO, they should be merged into some other thread, possibly that 700+ page long one. Otherwise, we're going to be flooded w/such new threads, if every CB loser decides to start a new thread.

Or, perhaps there should be separate threads for lost my 1st capacity bar, 2nd capacity bar, 3rd capacity bar, etc.? This might make the most sense, as there would be a thread to find all the 3 CB losers, 4 CB losers, 5 CB losers, etc., which also could help feed into the wiki/table. I think the "record" holder so far is a 6 capacity bar loser!

Just report the post and say that it should be merged into the thread with a pointer to the proper thread.

6 bar loser? I see a couple of 5 bar losers but haven't seen any 6 bar loser yet.

6 bar loser at viewtopic.php?p=431453#p431453.

Moving forward, should they all get merged into that 700+ page thread or should there be separate threads depending on the # of bars lost?

right now there are at least 6 monsterish threads that have bar losers tacked on.

Early Capacity Losses-Was(Lost a bar...down to 11) (the biggest monster thread) viewtopic.php?f=30&t=8802
The Battery Replacement Thread viewtopic.php?f=30&t=14102
POST YOUR BATTERY DEGRADATION RESULTS viewtopic.php?f=31&t=13371
2013 Low Battery Capacity AHr Battery Degradationviewtopic.php?f=31&t=13776
Early Adopter Mistake - Running on Empty viewtopic.php?f=27&t=19880
2013-2014 bar losers and capacity losses viewtopic.php?f=30&t=18269

and tons of smaller "I just lost bar x" style threads.

I'd be fine with keeping a 2013 specific title thread for the people that read general press articles and think the 2013 is somehow better to come and see the 3 bar loser and 1 bar losers we already have and the coming waves of 1, 2, and 3 bar losers we'll see this fall and next summer. But I don't see any reason to have multiple 2013 threads.

I'd love to see more consolidation of random threads. Do we need 4 or more monsterish threads? Do we need 3?

I'd say rename the monster thread from Early Capacity Losses-Was(Lost a bar...down to 11)" to "Capacity Losses 2011/12 Leafs-Was(Lost a bar...)" and start moving the 2011 and 2012 losers into that thread.

Start moving 2013/2014 losers into "2013-2014 bar losers and capacity losses"

to me that would move all the messages out of POST YOUR BATTERY DEGRADATION RESULTS into one of those two threads and then we'd have to make a new thread when the first 2015 Leaf loses a bar.
